kraft paper

Production of H2PAD begins by selecting heavyweight Saturation Grade Kraft Paper designed for high water absorption rates. This specialty Kraft is also formulated for consistent resin pick-up; a crucial step to ensure proper resin impregnation  during manufacturing.

H2PAD resin

A proprietary resin contains critical formulation of acrylic polymer glues, melamine additive for fire resistance, and fungicide additive. A special viscosity additive ensures even application on each sheet.

H2PAD humidity icon

Throughout the manufacturing process, technicians constantly monitor the moisture content of the paper.  Consistent moisture content is critical to proper adhesion of glues and the curing process.

H2PAD flame

Triple Curing Process. The first oven bakes the resin coating on the paper. The second oven cures each sheet individually after corrugating and before pressing to ensure consistent glue contact points. A third oven cures each media block for three hours before cutting and sanding.


3/4” ProTec Edging increases pad life by protecting against UV light and mechanical damage when cleaning. Helps to prevent the buildup of algae and minerals on the air entry side of the H2PAD. Special wetting additive promotes even water distribution by reducing the amount water collecting on the pad surface.
